AirPods Pro 2 price: Save on Apple noise-canceling earbuds

The second-gen AirPods Pro earbuds deliver up to two times more effective noise cancellation and better sound quality than their predecessors. This is backed by a claimed six hours of music playback with ANC on. (You can extend this to 30 hours using the bundled carrying case.)

Apple’s flagship earbuds are incredibly portable, and yet they deliver excellent audio and superior noise cancellation. Cult of Mac‘s review of AirPods Pro 2 “a must-have for Apple users and a solid choice for anyone.”

USB-C case, H2 chip and all the latest Apple tech

As with the iPhone 15 lineup, Apple switched to a USB-C port on the AirPods Pro charging case last year. So with this model, you won’t need to hunt for a Lightning cable when you need to top-up the earbuds’ MagSafe-compatible case. The case also comes with one of Apple’s U1 chips inside. That, along with a tiny built-in speaker, makes the case easier to find.

Plus, thanks to Apple’s H2 chip, AirPods Pro can automatically connect with other Apple devices logged into your iCloud account. Then you can seamlessly switch between them at will. (Read more about the AirPods Pro with USB-C case on Apple’s specs page.)

If you already own a Vision Pro headset, or plan on getting one, this model of AirPods Pro will perfectly complement your $3,499 Apple headset. In fact, they are the only earbuds that can deliver Lossless Audio with low latency when paired with the Vision Pro.

With this new deal dropping the AirPods Pro 2  price from $249 to just $179.99, there’s no reason not to pull the trigger if you want Apple’s noise-canceling earbuds. This is even lower than the best price we saw for AirPods Pro 2 during 2023’s Black Friday sales.
